Squad 11/DOE

Squad 11/DOE is the Inspector General for the New York City Department of Education (DOE) and has broad authority to investigate wrongdoing by teachers and other school employees within the City of New York, the nation’s largest school district with more than 1.1 million students and 140,000 staff in over 1,800 schools. This Squad’s investigations involve employees, individuals, and vendors associated with DOE and can include cases of alleged sexual misconduct and inappropriate relationships with students. Squad 11 also investigates allegations of unsupervised children, corporal punishment, and inappropriate cell phone and social media contact involving DOE employees and potential conflicts of interest. This Squad also serves as the Inspector General for the Teachers' Retirement System of the City of New York and the New York City Board of Education Retirement System.

Mayoral Executive Order 11 of 1990 created the Special Commissioner of Investigation for the City School District of the City of New York (SCI), which is now also known as the Inspector General for DOE. This unit operates independently of the Department of Education.
